Description of problem:
sshd from openssh-server-2.5.2p2-5.i386.rpm hangs on the first reboot when 
doing a server install(on an Amd5x85).  I am guessing it is having trouble 
generating the host key.  (ctrl-alt-del can still switch to run level 6 
and reboot)  Fixed by doing a rescue mode and manually start init.d/sshd 
to generate the key.  Next reboot works fine.

Note: This was a network boot install, Samba and Webserver were selected 
during the install.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Install RedHat 7.1 (bootnet.img)
2.  Use a Server install, also select Samba and Webserver
3.  After installation, reboot.	

Actual Results:  Machine will hang on sshd.

Expected Results:  sshd should generate the key and continue boot.

Which kind of system do you have?  Key generation can take a _long_ while if 
your CPU is not fast enough; up to 15 minutes on i386's and the like, I have
